Nollywood star actress, Idowu Philips, popularly known as ‘Mama Rainbow‘ has made a startling revelation.
In a recent interview with Daily Trust, the 80-year-old grandma narrated how one of her children once tried to convince her to become a witch so she would be rich.
The actress who is a brand ambassador for one of the largest telecommunication companies, further revealed that she was broke during the early stage of her career, especially as her husband, Femi died a few years after their marriage, leaving her to raise their children.
Mama Rainbow recalled how one of her children who initially did not align with her religious beliefs, advised that she became a witch so they can be rich.
“It was tough; after prayers, some of them would always cry. Whenever one of my sons saw me with a Bible he would ask what I was doing with it. At a point, he said he would take me to where I could become a witch and I agreed. He said that once I became a witch we would be okay.”
The widowed mother further revealed after she gave in and went to the place with him but the child dragged her out after he realized the price it comes with.
“I agreed and he took me somewhere, but before God and man, when I got there and they told me the requirements, I was shocked. They said it was the child I loved the most that would be used for sacrifice.
“I told the person that it was the child I loved most that brought me to the place. At that point, my son held my hand and said it was time to go home.”
